Excerpt: I have used this camera since 18 months. Release date was in spring 2005. I bought it directly. The 7.2 MP were innovative for this time. The Exilim-serie has special program like, portrait, mountains, sunsets, etc. The movies are in MPEG-4 Quali and are very good. The boday of the camera is steel-made and very robust, I tried a often. Altogether a very good camera which makes fantastic colored photos.
Conclusion: Given that the majority of ultra-compact 7 megapixel cameras share the same CCD sensor, have similar lenses and processors, and have enough pixels that any small differences in resolution and noise will only be visible when you produce big enlargements, it is perhaps unsurprising that they produce very similar results when printed at 'normal' sizes.
Pros: Good resolution and good results (see below), Comprehensive feature set with real photographic control, Wide selection of scene modes, Excellent user interface, Excellent all-metal construction, Good white balance, Very compact, Low luminance noise at lower ISO settings, Big screen, Very responsive operation, very low shutter lag, Fast focus, Advanced MPEG-4 movie mode, More customization options than normal in this class of camera, Good battery life
Cons: Images at default settings over-sharp, over-contrasty and over-saturated, Macro mode doesn't get as close as some competitors, Some problems with exposure in wide dynamic range scenes, Visible color noise at ISO 400, Mediocre burst mode, Very under-powered flash, Screen difficult to see in bright light, Have to use the docking cradle to charge battery and use AV output
Excerpt: Good things can sneak up on you when you're not looking. Take the Casio Z 750, for example. It looks like any other pocket-size snapper but its release wasn't announced with dancing girls or Champagne fountains. In fact, it doesn't even profess to do anything particularly unusual.
Conclusion: As I said in my introduction, I really enjoyed using the Casio Exilim EX-Z750. I've even thought about buying one for myself. It has a great list of features, including a lot of manual controls as well as great point-and-shoot functionality. But what really sets this camera apart for me is the combination of speed and size. I love that I can drop it in my pocket and take it everywhere. And I am very, very impressed with the quick startup and minimal shutter-lag.
Pros: Truly pocket-sized, Big LCD, Best Shot mode with illustrative images and descriptions, Fast start-up and quick shutter response, Accurate, saturated color, Awesome battery!
Cons: Exposure control a bit awkward, LCD hard to see in bright sunlight, Awkward, two-button playback control, Somewhat harsh, contrasty image quality, No ISO info in EXIF data
Excerpt: Casio's newest digicam is a precision built imaging tool that absolutely radiates class. It reminds me of the iconic Rollei 35S and the sexy little Contax T2 film cameras. The Casio Exilim EX Z750 is a seven-megapixel digital camera that's small enough to be dropped in a shirt pocket and tough enough to go just about anywhere. It's very fast (across the board), has better battery life than the Energizer bunny, and is almost infinitely tweakable.
Excerpt: The Casio Exilim EX-Z750 ($440) is an ultra compact camera with a 7.2 Megapixel CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, large 2.5" LCD display, high quality movie mode, and much more. For better or for worse the market is suddenly becoming crowded with small, high resolution cameras like this: Canon, Nikon, and Sony all have similar models. That means that the Z750 has its work cut out for it. How does it perform? Find out now in our review!
Pros: Very good image quality (with proper adjustments), Ultra-compact metal body, Large 2.5" LCD display (though see issues below), Robust performance, Full manual controls (though see issue below), AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Excellent movie mode, Very good battery life, Tons of scene modes
Cons: Images are oversaturated; a little too sharp as well, Redeye a problem, LCD doesn't "gain up" in low light; screen resolution could be higher, Flash is pretty weak, though Flash Assist helps, USB requires use of camera dock, Can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod, Poor Mac compatibility for movie viewing/editing, No memory card included; just 8.3 MB of on-board memory, Full camera manual only on CD-ROM
Excerpt: The EX-Z750 compared to a standard Compact Disc. The Exilim EX-Z750 and the similarly sized Canon Powershot SD500 . Continue on to Features & Controls Casio EX-Z750 Specifications Imaging element: 1/1.8-inch CCD (7.41 million pixels total; effective 7.2 million pixels) Recording formats: Still images: JPEG (Exif Ver 2.2) / DCF-compliant / DPOF-compatible; Video images: AVI system, MPEG-4 compliant; Audio: WAV Recording media: Internal memory ~8.3 MB SD memory card / MMC...
Summary: The EX-Z750 packs all the good elements of Casio's P series into its pocket-sized design, with the exception of Canon's optics. The result is a decent point-and-shoot camera that offers enough flexibility to appeal to both beginners and enthusiasts, but is let down by the lack of image definition.
